Ancient Astronauts Visited Bolivia and Peru

Richard Buchli D.V.M. provided this 1955 Chilean Air Force Photo of the NASCA Lines. This bird marking directs the aerial viewer to Tiahuanaco, Bolivia

The NASCA lines in Peru can be seen from space and point to key ancient cities on the West coast of South America such as Tiahuanaco, where sophisticated cities with huge blocks of stone weighing hundreds of tons were moved and carved. Last week I showed carvings of apparent space vehicles that were found along the Andes Mountains that seem to represent supply vehicles coming from space. Many of the ancient leaders in Peru and Bolivia have exceptionally large heads, appear to be Caucasian and wore long robes that infer colonization from another planet or at the least a different species than the natives of South America. The exceptionally elongated crania on the ancient leaders known as Dolichocephaloids, suggest a far different past than the Indians of the Andes. Not only did they look different, they had advanced knowledge of astronomy and construction techniques. Some anthropologists suggest the elongated skulls were the result of the Peruvian Indian practice of head-binding. However, two mummies of babies less than a year old (analyzed in England) ... belonged to the Aymaraes tribe had elongated skulls. Additionally, an unborn seven month old fetus enclosed in the womb of a mummy of a pregnant woman had an elongated skull! The possibility exists that these are a different species or alien life forms that came to Earth.

Tiahuanaco (also called Tiwanaku) located near Lake Titicaca is a mystery because of its extreme age and its peculiar stone technology that may be older than Egyptian or Sumerian construction. This stone technology plainly contradicts what official archaeology suggests about the general state of development of the ancient peoples of South-America. Conventional historians assign the age of buildings of Tiahuanaco at around 600 B.C., or even later believing that a pre-Inca civilization, without benefit of the wheel, modern tools or even a written language constructed these architectural marvels. The ancient city of Tiahuanaco, Bolivia contains a pyramid and strange architecture that was built with the clear understanding of astronomy and advanced construction techniques. Professor Arthur Posnansky studied the area in the 1930 ‘s before much of the early stones were carried off for building the Bolivian railway. Posnansky summed up his 50 year study in a four volume work entitled "Tiahuanaco, The cradle of American Man" first published in 1945. He explains his theories are based on his calculations of archeoastronomy claiming the site was occupied in 15,000 B.C. Paleontologists tell us that mankind was living in caves and hunting animals for food, while a sophisticated city according to Posnansky was being built by moving an cutting blocks weighting as much as 400 tons.

Posnansky claims construction of the central temple of Kalasasaya during a Second Period of construction, determined the seasons of the solar year. It was necessary for Kalasasaya to have special form and orientation, with the east and west walls to be located exactly on the meridian and that the proportion between the length and width of the building conformed to the maximum angle of solar declination between the solstices of that time. It is doubtful that cavemen could have planned and built these buildings.

Within the complex may be the oldest pyramid in the world. a semi-subterranean temple with stone heads tenoned into the walls; and a low rectangular platform called Kalasasaya, enclosed by a retaining wall of upright stones alternating with smaller rectangular blocks. In one corner of the platform stands a great monolithic doorway.

The religion of Tiahuanaco centered around the cult of a sky and thunder god Viracocha shown above. The deity was generally depicted as having staves in both of his hands and an aureole around his head. Viracocha, as the feathered serpent god, is one of the great mysteries of ancient American cultures. He was called Kukulkan by the Mayas, Quetzalcoatl by the Aztecs, and Viracocha by the Incas. The Maya believe that certain gods and royal ancestors were carried down from the heavens to the earth within the vessel of a great serpent referred to as 'Lord Starman'. The staves suggest Viracocha's ancestry to Chavín sky god of Peru. Viracocha is described as a man with fair skin and white beard, attired in a long robe and sandals, wearing a staff, with a cougar lying at his feet. He was a kind and peace-loving god. The citizens of Tiahuanaco are called the Viracochas, they were fair-skinned and wore white long robes.

Ancient Statues of Tiahuanaco

One of the main reasons Professor Posnansky claimed the city was constructed in 15, 000 B.C. are plentiful statues and depictions of toxodons and several other extinct creatures such as mastodons, and giant jaguars. Toxodons were large animals similar to a hippopotamus now extinct in South America that died out about 12,000 years ago. The question is how could images of these extinct animals be carved on the original buildings themselves without a live model?

Posnansky noticed dozens of things that could not be explained by the conventional archeological theory nor slotted into its chronological framework. For example, all over the site were enormous blocks of stone that no known pre-Columbian culture had the technology to fashion or transport. Even more astonishing, the spatial arrangement of these structures - relative to one another and to the stars above - indicated that the initial site engineers had a highly sophisticated knowledge of astronomy, geomancy and mathematics.

This precision-made 6 mm wide groove contains equidistant, drilled holes.

It seems impossible that these cuts were made with use of stone or copper tools.

Additionally, the stone structures show indications of cuts and holes made by advanced metals and power tools. Tiahuanaco has four (surviving) primary structures, called the Akapana pyramid, the Kalasasaya platform, the Subterranean temple, and the Puma Punku. The ceremonial core of Tiahuanaco was surrounded by an immense artificial moat, that signified a sacred island and the mythic site of world creation and human emergence." The Akapana pyramid, sometimes called the sacred mountain of Tiahuanaco, is a much eroded, seven-level pyramid measuring some 200 meters on a side and nearly 17 meters tall. Like the nearby Subterranean Temple and the Kalasasaya, the Akapana is precisely oriented to the cardinal directions. Each of the seven levels is constructed with beautifully cut and precisely joined blocks that were faced with panels once covered with metal plaques, carvings, and paintings. In the center of the Akapana's flat summit is a small, sunken courtyard laid out in the form of a square superimposed over a perfect cross oriented to the cardinal directions. Recent excavations of this courtyard, the interior of the pyramid, and the grounds beneath it have revealed an unexpected, sophisticated, and monumental system of interlinked surface and subterranean channels. These channels brought water collected upon the summit down and through the seven levels, where it exited below ground level, merged into a major subterranean drain system.

According to Donna Anderson of © 2008 RaidersNewsNetwork Researcher David Flynn using satellite photography studied the high plateau of Bolivia and found previously undiscovered unnatural patterns stretching outward from Lake Titicaca for hundreds of square miles. The geoglyphic works range from arrow straight parallel lines, enormous over lapping perfect circles and rectangles to 'labyrinth like' systems of walls and mounds extending over every feature of the terrain.

The structure known as the Puma Punka also startles the imagination. It seems to be the remains of a great wharf and a massive, four-part, now collapsed building, and this makes eminent sense for Lake Titicaca long ago lapped upon the shores of Tiahuanaco city, now inland from the lake twelve miles.

One of the construction blocks from which the pier was fashioned weighs an estimated 440 tons (equal to nearly 600 full-size cars) and several other blocks are between 100 and 150 tons. The quarry for these giant blocks was on the western shore of Titicaca, some ten miles away. There is no known technology in the ancient Andean world that could have transported stones of such massive weight and size.

Today there is little doubt that Tiahuanaco was a major sacred ceremonial centre and focal point of a culture that spread across much of the region. It appears Tiahuanaco was built before the last Ice Age when Pleistocene animals extinct for 12,000 years and primitive cavemen roamed the Earth. Professor Posnansky's original conclusions were likely correct and Tiahuanaco was built in 15,000 B.C. The citizens of Tiahuanaco are called the Viracochas, who were fair-skinned and wore white long robes and had elongated craniums. They do not fit into the pattern of evolution, so we must look for another answer for their existence. Perhaps these models do represent space ships, the people of the Andes claim they do.

Private SpaceX: Falcon 9 Gets into Space

SpaceX a privately developed rocket has made it into space. After three failed launches, the company founded by Elon Musk the co-founder of PayPal, worked all of the bugs out of their Falcon 1 launch vehicles. The entire spectacle was broadcast live from Kwajalein Atoll in the South Pacific. Cameras mounted on the spacecraft showed our planet shrinking in the distance and the empty first stage engine falling back to Earth. As the rocket ascended, cheers rang out during every crucial step of the launch sequence, and at the final stage their headquarters in Hawthorne, California erupted in excitement. This is the first private space ship to make it into space in the modern world. The third stage separation worked perfectly.

Eight minutes after leaving the ground, Falcon 1 reached a speed of 5200 meters per second and passed above the International Space Station. "We're going to get Falcon 9 to orbit next year," said Musk. "The future of SpaceX is really great." With a successful Falcon 1 launch under their belt, SpaceX has set its sights on hauling cargo for NASA with the larger Falcon 9 rocket, transporting crews to the International Space Station in its Dragon capsule, and landing on the Moon with a modified Falcon 1 rocket.

The Falcon 9 rocket will be shipped to Cape Canaveral to prep for its NASA cargo flights. Falcon 9 has nine Merlin rocket engines and is capable of taking cargo, and eventually crew, to and from the International Space Station.

Robbie Williams Writing UFO Album

LONDON, ENGLAND -- Robbie Williams has spent two weeks at a UFO camp writing his new album. The "Angels" singer - who has previously claimed to have had extraterrestrial encounters - arrived armed with video equipment in his search for aliens during a recent visit to Trout Lake in Washington. Extraterrestrial expert Michael C. Luckman - who recently identified Robbie as an alien ambassador - told BANG Showbiz: "Robbie used the occasion as an opportunity to write several new songs about aliens. I wouldn't be surprised if Robbie may be planning an alien album." "The place is known as America's number one UFO hotspot and a magnet for true believers in aliens." Thanks to Michael Luckman

California - Flying Triangle

FRENCH VALLEY --On October 7, 2008, I had just finished a bicycle security patrol of the site at 2:26 AM, and was parked on a dark hilltop away from the city lights and within sight of the rotating beacon at our local French Valley airport. I am a hang glider pilot, ex-military pilot and FAA licensed private pilot for over 27 years. At first, I thought it was a hang glider but it was too large for a drone or glider. It was maintaining its altitude on a moonless night. I observed the triangle shaped craft as it traveled through a viewing arc of 60 degrees in ten seconds. I estimated the speed at about 80 to 100 miles per hour. It had no exterior anti collision lights, strobes, and or markings except for a unique camouflage pattern. I asked myself why the bottom of the craft would need to be pattered in such a way? As the craft flew directly overhead, I grabbed my 'Mag Light' flashlight, which was previously adjusted to illuminate an object to 300 feet. I did not take my eyes off of the craft and aimed the Mag Light at the passing craft hoping to see more detail, with no effect. I would estimate the craft was at 400 or 500 feet AGL and had wing span of 42 to 45 feet with a 60 foot length.

The craft was silent (no humming, electrical or pulsing noise) traveling north toward Polaris (North Star). This technology could be the result of a "Black Government Project". I felt afterword that if this was extraterrestrial in nature, I would have expected a more aerodynamic looking craft designed with more compound curves. I felt this was military and NOT extraterrestrial, but extraterrestrial in nature. The craft and faded out of sight into the darkness when the lower surface was no longer illuminated from the ambient light provided by the parking lot lights below. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Colorado - Silver Shaped Disk (UFO)

NORTHGLENN -- I was laying in my back yard on September 12, 2008, at 11:10 AM, when four completely black helicopters flew directly over head, and pretty low. About two seconds later they were followed by the disk shaped shiny UFO following at the exact speed as the helicopters. I didn't grab a camera because it was a very shocking site. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Florida - Shuttle UFO

CAPE CANAVERAL -- I noticed this unexplained UFO when I was looking at some Space Shuttle pictures on yahoo today. I have resized the object as to see it better. It looks like a round object and it is hovering over the Space Shuttle. This is what it said next to the photo: "Space shuttle Endeavour stands ready after arriving at pad 39B at Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Fla., Friday, Sept. 19, 2008. Just a short distance away on pad 39A, technicians continue to prepare space shuttle Atlantis for its targeted October 10, launch on mission STS-125 to service the Hubble Space Telescope." Thanks to MUFON CMS

FT LAUDERDALE -- I saw three light-emitting objects hovering over the ocean, maybe a mile or two from our beach on September 15, 2008. I took several pictures that show the objects. The first picture, shows one bright round bulb-light object, and two fuzzy orange objects at the top-left and bottom of the picture. Several other photos showed the objects. In the last photograph, the orange-colored objects had disappeared and the bright round bulb-light object had moved up and to the left of its previous position, now displaying a strange earring-like shape, emitting bright yellow light from its top and bright white light from its bottom. This item, when magnified, suggests a horizontal dish-like shape with small window-like lights. Thanks to MUFON CMS

New York - UFO Photos

MOHONK MOUNTAIN -- My name is Vincent Sheppard and I was recently on a retreat with the organization I work for up at the Mohonk Mountain Hotel in New Paltz, in the Catskill Mountains. While I was there I took several pictures with my cell phone camera of the beautiful country and the surrounding mountains along the Hudson River. When I got home and started to view the pictures I had taken. I noticed I captured something strange in it. This picture has not been altered and has three red objects and a plane or jet chasing it. I know this sounds crazy, but please see for yourself. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Ohio - UFO with Lights Around It

WESTCHESTER -- My fiancée and I were on the top floor balcony of our condo on September 10, 2008, at 2:05 AM, and saw a round object, north of Westchester. The object was stationary with white, yellow and red lights all around it. They moved around the round disc continually. We knew it was not an airplane because they do not stand still. We knew it wasn't a planet because they have no revolving lights. We got out our binoculars and watched the object for ten minutes; then it disappeared with a flash of light. We know it was a UFO because we could clearly see it. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Pennsylvania - Star Like Orb

FAIRLESS HILLS -- When I was taking out the trash on October 5, 2008, I noticed one very quick flickering light hovering over the Fairless Hills Golf Course quite high up about 8:30 PM. Then I saw another quick flickering object hovering over Trenton Road that quickly disappeared. Then another one flickered over Oxford Valley Road. They all hovered and flickered on again for about five minutes. I got my camera but was unable to get a picture. There were bright, quick flickering lights hovering and disappearing; plus several helicopters circling the Oxford Valley Mall area. My daughter who is four also saw the red flickering objects until 9:45 PM. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Rhode Island - Orbs

NEWPORT COUNTY -- I took these two photos four seconds apart on September 11, 2008. The first photo shows many UFO's but in the next photo four seconds later they all vanished., Thanks to MUFON CMS

Tennessee - Police Spot Flying Disc

NASHVILLE -- On May 10, 1980, I was a metro Nashville police officer assigned to the security of Mayor Dick Fulton during a fireman's strike. Myself and one other intelligence officer were assigned to his home stationed outside. My partner was asleep in the car and I was walking the grounds when I noticed something in the sky headed south dropping down until it hovered directly over the estate. It was close enough that I could have hit it with gun fire. It was only there for a few seconds then it flew straight up out of my sight. I was afraid to say anything to anyone for fear of being transferred to the rubber gun squad.

The object I saw was disk shaped, some 100 feet - + wide with multi-colored lights rotating around its outer rim. The mayor's home was located on a hilltop overlooking the city five miles away from Nashville off Dickerson road. The skies were clear and no outside lights interfered with what I saw. This has bothered me for years, but now more and more people are seeing what I saw.

Comments: This in an incredible sighting by a credible witness of a classic flying saucer. The drawback to this case is that it happened several years ago making it difficult to obtain corroborative testimony or additional witnesses. A search of MUFON and National UFO Reporting Center databases did not reveal any sightings in Tennessee on this date. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Virginia - Excellent Still Pictures of Triangle

My Mom was outside smoking on September 23, 2008, at 9:00 PM, when she told me to come and look at some lights. When I went out we saw an object with lights flashing constantly. It stayed in this spot for about thirty minutes if not longer. It looked as if it was turning, but not moving forward. I got my binoculars, but the object was not very clear because it was pretty far away. You could see several lights that were different in color and see that it was hovering. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Washington – Strange Color Orbs

On October 1, 2008, I was working on some art projects when outside of the window some red, green, and blue flashes caught my attention. I grabbed my camera and went outside overlooking the Naval Shipyard and started shooting. Two bright white orbs appeared and kept their distance from each other and came to a stop right above me. Then took off to the left side of the skies above. Two more orbs appeared from same area as I took this picture as the objects flew towards me. This is not a digital glitch in my 10 meg Kodak camera. When you zoom into this object it appears like a circuit board design rather than pixilation in usual digital photography. It was invisible to the naked eye. Thanks to MUFON CMS

Outside USA Reports

Australia -- UFO Triangle

CAMPBELLTOWN, NEW SOUTH WALES – On September 12, 2008, at 11:20 PM, I spotted three slow moving red flashing lights. They flashed in sequence, and then the sequence changed. There was no sound. There was a helicopter in the area flying much lower, that made sound and had white and red flashing lights. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Canada – Sightings and Photos

VANCOUVER -- I am sending my written report and a photograph of an object spotted above the tall tree over Cypress Mountain. Thanks to Rifet Bahtijaragic and Thanks to MUFON CMS

OSHAWA -- Paul Michael Shishis writes, "I thought to share another example of a presence from above. This photo was taken over my house in Oshawa August 30, 2008. I have two other photos taken before this photo illustrated. There's no anomaly in the others-just the plane. As one can clearly see when enlarged there is a double connected white anomaly, trailing behind this aircraft directly above my position. Thanks to Paul Michael Shishis

BRANDON, MANITOBA – I took two pictures on May 22, 2008, at River Bank Discovery within thirty seconds. The object above is in the first photo, but it was gone in the second photo. My wife challenged that the object might be a balloon, but I do not think a balloon would fly out of the photo that fast. Besides, I would rather believe it moved very fast and created the hazy halo around it. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

Ireland -- Silver Cylinder Shaped UFO

WATERFORD -- Driving home from my girlfriend's house on September 9, 2008, at 9:40 PM, all of a sudden a silver reflection came from the top of my on the passenger side window and veered right then disappeared. It was either very fast or close which it did not seem to be. It looked very small in the distance. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

DUBLIN -- The truth is out there if a Fianna Fail a politician and a pilot are to be believed. He claims aliens are keeping a close eye on us from above. Dramatic eye-witness testimony was heard at the fifth Irish International UFO conference where delegates were provided "definitive" proof of recent UFO activity in the skies around Dublin and Meath. Footage filmed on a camera phone at 10.35 PM, on August 3 near Dunboyne was shown. A triangular shaped image, with lights at each point, sent a red laser-type light towards earth, drew gasps of amazement from the 70+ delegates who attended the world premiere of the footage.

Perú - Mothership

SATIPO -- Amazing Extraterrestrial Mothership was photographed over Perú in a video by Proyecto UFO Piura (Gigantesca Nave Nodriza Extraterrestre Captada Por Integrante De Proyecto UFO Piura, Perú.

Switzerland - Round Orange Lights (Photo)

WETTINGEN, AG -- Driving home with my car about thirty minutes after midnight on September 14, 2008, I noticed that above the nearby Kreuzliberg Hill in Baden there were about twenty lights arranged in a circular form. The form, however, wasn't fixed and the lights seemed to move individually except for the three lights that my wife and I saw from our balcony. The three lights moved around like they were somehow connected and slowly disappeared behind the hill. All the lights seemed to constantly shake slightly. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

UK - Sightings

Northern Ireland Ring Shaped UFO

BELFAST -- On August 28, 2008, at 10:40 AM, we were descending 5 to 7 minutes before landing on Aerlingus flight EI23 bound for Belfast International Airport. I was in the window seat talking to husband and spotted a ring shaped flat object near our aircraft. The color was like a black cloud. Within split second, it seemed like it was quickly being erased. I did not even have the time to grab my husband to look out before it was gone. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research

BARNSTAPLE, NORTH DEVON -- At about 10.10 PM on August 3, 2008, I went into our bedroom, when a very intensely bright light caught my eyes. At first, I thought it must be a star, however, it became bigger and brighter and then split into three objects. I rushed to get my camera and to my great annoyance the batteries needed replacing, but my husband had spare batteries so I was able to take some photos. I could see clearly that the object had indeed formed other smaller objects.

LANCASTER, LANCASHIRE -- I was at home at 11:20 PM, on September 11, 2008, when I saw a bright orange object in the sky, flying from one side of the sky to the other.

It flew over my house going faster than a plane. It took about 20 seconds to go from one side of the sky to the other. As soon as that disappeared, another object the same as the first took the same path across the sky. Then when that disappeared, a third similar object did exactly the same. They looked like they were following one another?

CRAWLEY, WEST SUSSEX – I saw a very bright flashing light, with an intermittent thirty second delay. I looked out of bedroom window for closer inspection and could not see the object; however I saw a dark black shadow against tall pine trees in the neighbor's garden. It was a definite saucer shape flying 15 to 18 feet above the ground. Thanks to Brian Vike Director of HBCC UFO Research
